Main Characters in this Episode
Dan Humphrey: This invitation isn't about seduction, Georgina. It's about scandal.
Georgina Sparks: Can't a girl have both? Philip will understand. We have an open marriage and a mutual understanding of each other.
Dan Humphrey: I need your photographic memory and your passion for social upheaval to help me write another book on the Upper East Side. The book I should have written from the beginning.
Georgina Sparks: Nothing like a scorned lover to scorch the earth. I can hardly wait.
Chuck Bass: You said that this was a family business. What happened to us being partners?
Bart Bass: You said partnership. I said nothing, and I did what is best for the company.
Chuck Bass: The only reason why this company still exists is because I saved it. All I've done for the past three years is work to protect your legacy.
Bart Bass: And pine after Blair Waldorf.
Chuck Bass: Blair has nothing to do with how I've handled this business!
Bart Bass: You didn't try to trade her for a hotel deed? You didn't let everything fall apart when you ran away from her all the way to Europe? You didn't just, three months ago, almost bankrupt yourself trying to get her out of her marriage? I had hoped that you would had outgrown such foolish behavior. But you're still willing to throw everything away for a girl who has done nothing but toy with you. And you proved that when you took that engagement ring.
Chuck Bass: You gave me it. You encouraged me to win her back!
Bart Bass: It was a test. To see if you were ready to be a Bass like me. Ruthless, manipulative, vindictive, ambitious, greedy, and iron-hearted. To do the things to be a great man in order to be respected and feared. And you failed.
Chuck Bass: Failed? I got you out of hiding. I took down your enemy. I built this Empire Hotel!
Bart Bass: No, no, no, the most you have done is used my money to redecorate. Bass Industries needs to be run by a man, not a boy like you. You've never grown up. Maybe you can start, now that you're out. I want you out of this hotel by tomorrow. Goodbye and good luck, Chuck.
